What happened to _global, _root, _level?

(Working With and Building Custom Events)

I rarely used _root or _level just because some projects would end up getting loaded into other swfs. Sometimes I didn’t know this until halfway through or in the end. So I started using global instead. That way I could still target the main timeline, which is where I would try to keep all my code, without having to worry about root moving somewhere else later. When I built components I would also use global, from time to time, to target them from anywhere in the application being developed.

Hello world!

Welcome to my blog. It is pretty weird that I have been involved in building blogs and social network type sites for clients, yet I only now getting around to posting something online for my self. The web has been a great source of learning for me over the last few years and thought it was time to give something back.

 I have a few posts already planned out, most are Flash tips and tricks, and a few already in the works. Most of the flash tips are based on my experiences as a designer learning AS3, then I would like to share some other classes and older AS2 stuff. So stay tuned and in the mean time go build some cool stuff.  

If you would like to see some samples of past projects I have worked on, check out www.hdinteractive.com .
